My Treatment Process Edmonton Psychologist

You are the expert in your own life, and my work with you is reliant on combining what you know about yourself with my knowledge and expertise in the areas of mental health and psychology. You may be seeking help for depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder or something else entirely. Regardless, of what it is you are looking help with, I would like to understand what is affecting you and what negative impact any symptoms are having on your mental health. The goal in doing so is to identify the correct treatment to help you live the best, happiest and most enriching life possible. If you are looking for a Psychologist in Edmonton, call me to discuss how counselling may benefit you.

A good rapport and trusting relationship is where the treatment process begins. In therapy or counselling we need to be able to connect with each other and that starts with building a foundation of trust and friendship. As a psychologist offering services in Edmonton, my aim is to create a comfortable atmosphere in the sessions and to allow you to be yourself, share what you want to share and not push you into anything you don’t want to talk about.

Ultimately, it’s your choice, your time and I am here as a resource to help you deal with whatever is negatively affecting your life, whether that may be associated with depression, anxiety Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), ADHD, Bipolar disorder or problems in a relationship. With my experience and knowledge as a psychologist practicing in Edmonton these areas of mental health are my specialty. If you feel you could be experiencing any of these mental health problems we can work together to find solutions.

As an Edmonton psychologist my treatment starts with you. There is no pressure to commit and if you feel counselling is the avenue to improving your life please contact me for a free phone consultation and we’ll go from there.

How do I know I need help?

Are you constantly worrying about a loved one, yourself, your job, or simply spending too much time thinking about negative outcomes in your life? Does your mind seem to race or struggle to slow down? These can be signs and symptoms of mental health problems such as anxiety or ADHD.

Is it tough to focus on certain task, whether it is a simple daily chore, a conversation between friends and family, or a job at work? Negative overriding thoughts and emotions impacting your mental health may to be blame for this. As an Edmonton psychologist I can help as well as to provide a safe place to talk about why these thoughts are interfering with your life.

Do you find your moods shifting, extremely happy one moment, angry, irritable or depressed not too long after? As a trusted and registered psychologist in Edmonton, I want to help get to the bottom of why you have these constant mood swings. These types of changes in mood are common in mental health issues related to Bipolar Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. There is help and it starts with a simple discussion and conversation.

The feeling of utter sadness and helplessness can be overwhelming and can destroy relationships and make day-to-day life a major struggle. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a reason you feel this way and it stems from thoughts, experiences and how you cope with them. These are often thoughts and feelings associated with Depression and PTSD. With my expertise and your willingness towards positive change, together we can help begin the treatment process of discovering why you feel sad or helpless in the first place.

Alcohol and drugs often become a coping strategy for those struggling with mental health problems. They become a great way to numb and avoid thoughts and emotions. They may seem like a solution, but ultimately, they are not and they may create even more issues. Change starts with a simple conversation, understanding what led to using drugs and alcohol followed by developing healthier coping strategies within counselling. Inside the friendly confines of my Edmonton office, we can discuss this.
